If you don’t like space communism we will get Riker or perhaps even Picard to explain how great it is for you.
Burning books is for me one of the worst crimes against culture. But Ayn Rand is an exception. I don’t even think Mein Kampf should be burnt, it’s a lesson for the coming generations of the dark side of human nature. But Ayn Rand don’t teach us anything more than that she is one of history’s most overrated and bad authors. I could see the apple of Twilight through the eyes of an romantic teenager but I don’t even think drugs would help for me to understand Rand. I understand her but not why I should love her books. Atlas Shrugged could easily been written by a high school pupil as an assignment. It has that quality over it. A Norwegian pirate who steals money meant for the aid to the third world, from the poor and back to the entrepreneurs because in Rands fucked up world they are those who rightfully deserve them. My friend wrote about the finish sauna mafia one time in high school… It is better and more realistic.
